Yes, already decided who I'm voting for in this election and already decided my answer to the referendum question they're likely to present at the same time (spot the nerd studying constitutional law this semester...).
Irrespective of my views or vote I think that labour have run their "natural course" in power and most electors will see it as an opportunity for change, rightly or wrongly.

IMO they generally garner supports rom middle class and poorer Australians through racist policies and the media, painting boat people as terrorists and single mums as Sk@nky over breeders etc. they always support businesses rather then employees and are constantly trying to strip the rights of working Australians. I also find their policies and politicians downright sexist.
Im also not a labour voter any more as I feel they have moved too far to the right.
I hate that our country is turning into another USA.
I usually vote greens with a preference to labour.

I know who I'm voting for. I don't have a partner but my Mum votes the same as me and my brother and father vote opposite.
I wanted to add that my XH never had his own opinion, he barely knew which parties were which and always voted what I voted.

The likely referendum question will ask us if we want to formally recognise local governments in the constitution (it currently only recognises federal and statement government and sets out the separation of powers between the parliaments of each).
I am overwhelmingly against the idea! Too much detail in a high level document!

Oh bummer. Same sex marriage is a way better question but I thought it'd be too good to be true.

Given I'm a pinko, veggo, femmo, bleedin' heart leftie it's not hard to work out who I will vote for, or rather who I won't vote for. DF and I share political views with different emphasis on different issues. Our biggest dilemma is usually who to vote last on the ballot paper, the Family First party, the Australia First Party or similar types.

I have no idea who I'll vote for. I don't follow politics at all so no know nothing about either party. I usually just make it up as I go on the day or vote for who ever DH is voting for.
